The Florida swing continues with one of the toughest tournaments you’ll see all year at the Honda Classic. PGA National is a beast in calm conditions and downright torturous in high wind – the forecast this week looks particularly breezy, something golf betting fans need to keep in mind when breaking down a relatively weak field.

This event isn’t drawing as many top players now that it’s sandwiched between the Players Championship and the WGC-Match Play. But there are a few big names and the “Bear Trap” always makes for exciting viewing.

Daniel Berger is the betting favorite at +1050 in the latest Honda Classic odds, having won at Pebble Beach two weeks ago before a T-9 finish at the Players. Joaquin Niemann is second at +1300 and defending champion Sungjae Im is third at +1400. Lee Westwood rounds out the top four at +2250 after back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players Championship.

Players Championship Predictions & Betting Tips

Jim Furyk Top-10 Finish

Furyk is still chugging along at age 50. He’s made four consecutive cuts and finished T-21 at Pebble Beach and T-26 at Riviera against far stronger fields. He’s fourth in driving accuracy, second in greens in regulation and 18th in Strokes Gained Approach. He also makes a ton of hay in Florida.

Just two years ago he went T-9 at Honda, solo second at the Players and T-18 at the Valspar Championship. He’s still playing good golf this year and could definitely get in the mix on Sunday. We’re on Furyk Top-10 at +1000 at PointsBet .

Honda Classic Betting Tips

This is usually the most difficult non-major PGA Tour stop of the season. It’s long, there’s water everywhere, the rough is punishing and the wind can really whip. This course could probably host a U.S. Open if it weren’t so brutally hot in Palm Beach, Florida, during the summer months.

The forecast looks downright nasty this year with plenty of wind, so we’re definitely targeting strong irons players and accurate drivers who have control of their golf ball. We’re also looking at players who tend to perform well at the U.S. Open, where conditions are always difficult.

For longshots, we’re looking at Jhonattan Vegas, Michael Thompson, Adam Long and J.T. Poston, among others.
